  Mateo: 23...Qb8? looks like a blunder, even if Black actually drew.
Apr-02-15  Howard: IM John Donaldson analyzed this ending in the now-defunct Inside Chess back around 1991. As I recall, he pointed out a win that Ribli had missed.

Let me check the Informant when I get home later today. This game was in it, as I recall.

Apr-03-15  Howard: Nope, that game was not in the Informant--just checked it last night.

But I'm almost sure that Ribli reportedly missed a forced win somewhere.

Apr-03-15  Retireborn: <Howard> According to Houdini, 53.Bc6 lets most of the advantage slip, whereas 53.Ke6 instead would have won. It's not an easy endgame to understand, though.

Re: Informator I think it might be in the "Endgames" section at the back, if you have the relevant volume.

Apr-03-15  Howard: That's probably right ! That endgame WAS in the back of Volume 40, if I remember right.
Apr-03-15  Howard: One of the problems with converting this to a win is that White's RP is of the "wrong color" queening square.
